jAYBO MONK - DREAM MACHINES
Jaybo Monk is French artist born 1963 who lives in Berlin on a constant journey. With his store of memories he explores the world and draws an emotional topography of his life, consisting of half hidden visual fragments of memory that are revealing and timeless at the same time.
He is an artist at art’s end, where everything has already been painted, where all words have already been spoken, where the viral conduits of the internet merely fulfil the purpose of mediocrity, in which the imitator copies the replicator who copies the imitator and where, at each stage, some of the quality is sacrificed.he revolts against every form of this intoxication of imitation, rebels against all forms of institution and existing order. The artist follows paradoxical ideas, born of the legacy of Romanticism, ideas on the edge of insanity, orientated on childhood, nature, places of not-thinking. The result is a dance between the rational and irrational.
